Nicknamed "the dying city", Civita di Bagnoregio is a magical, surreal, simply fantastic place. Perched on the top of a tuff hill, and reachable only through a narrow and suggestive pedestrian bridge overlooking one of the most spectacular panoramas of Lazio, this ancient village is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating and evocative of our country. And a few kilometers from here, there is another great little jewel: Castello San Michele. This wonderful historic residence was built by Pietro di Mugnano in 1164, and from him it took the original name of Castel di Piero. It was owned by the descendants of the Baglioni family of Perugia, who held it until 1600 when it was sold first to the Benedetti family of Spoleto and then to the Prince of Montholon, Napoleon's faithful friend and supporter. Over the years the women of the families who lived there, Baglioni, Medici, Farnese and Colonna, decorated it finely, transforming it from a manor house to a prestigious residence where the most important personalities of the time stayed over time.
